Live-in care for couples

For couples that feel the time has come for some support around the house, live-in care offers a unique and cost-effective opportunity to remain living together at home with the assistance of a dedicated carer. Live-in care is ideal for couples that want round-the-clock support and reassurance without having to move into a residential home.

The benefits of live-in care for you as a couple includes…


Whether one of both of you need some support, live-in care is the ideal solution for couples that want to continue their lives together.


Enjoy the reassurance of round-the-clock care in your own home, surrounded by your furniture, your things, in your neck of the woods.


Whatever you enjoy doing, do it in the comfort of your own home and with your partner nearby. Why change the habits of a lifetime?


Your dedicated live-in carer will be available to support you and your partner as much or as little as you like.

Stay together stress-free

If you and your partner have spent most of your life together, it’s only natural you’ll both wish to stay that way. If one or both of you need full-time support from a carer but do not wish to separate or leave your home, live in care could be ideal for you.

Provided you have a spare room or living area, a live in carer will stay with you in your home to provide whatever support you require, whether it’s keeping on top of the housework, preparing meals, helping you get out and about and about, or with your mobility around the home. For couples that are determined to stay together, live-in care works out significantly cheaper than two rooms in a care home. It allows you and your partner to maintain your mutual independence while continuing to live your life together.

Your live-in carer will work with you to make sure your care needs are met, taking the pressure off of you and your partner so you can enjoy time with each other. Your live-in carer will be respectful and will observe the boundaries you’ll set out in your initial conversations with us, while always being on-hand to assist you when needed.


Live-in carers are available to help with a range of daily tasks, all of which enable you or your loved one to remain living in your own home. They can help as much or as little as you like with all of the following tasks and more:

  • Shopping and meal preparation
  • Laundry and ironing
  • Household and domestic chores
  • Administering or prompting medication
  • Personal care
  • Mobility around the home
  • Getting out and about
  • Companionship
  • Responding to emergencies

A cost-effective care solution

For couples in particular, live-in care can be a cost-effective way to get the assistance you and your partner need.

With live-in care, you don’t need to pay for the living space of two people, you just need a spare room and to pay for the live-in carer’s time. Also, remember that unlike a care home, live-in care is tailored completely to your life, your routines and the specific way that you and your partner like things done.

We take great pride in the people we employ who always go over and above to make sure that everybody who uses our services receives a level of care that is kind, compassionate and personal to them.

Your live-in carer will be fully trained and background checked. We only employ people that are passionate about the work we do and who meet our strict recruitment criteria. We employ our live-in carers directly, meaning we do not source carers through third party agencies. The key traits we look for in our live-in carers are a compassionate nature and a willingness to work to improve the lives of the people who need us.

The care you receive should always be personal to you. We know that your care needs will be different to the next person’s and that their needs will be unique to them. We’ll design a personalised care plan based around you and your partner’s needs, whether one of you has a more serious medical condition or whether you both just need a little help around the home.

Live-in care from Clarendon could be right for you and your partner if:

  • You wish to stay together living in your own home, surrounded by the things and the memories you share

  • You and your partner are looking for a cost-effective alternative to a care home

  • You would rather have one dedicated carer to support you than an ever-changing roster of unfamiliar faces

  • You want to carry on living a life that includes your routines, hobbies and interests above all else

  • You wish to stay with your beloved pets (care homes have set limits on pet numbers)
